Park wins 1st of year in duel over Pettersen
Question of the Day
HAIKOU, China (AP) - Inbee Park captured her first win of the year in a battle between No. 1 and No. 2 in women’s golf at the World Ladies Championship.
Park closed with a 6-under 67 for a five-shot victory over Suzann Pettersen in a Ladies European Tour event.
Pettersen, who started the final round tied for the lead, closed with a 72. So Yeon Ryu had a 69 and finished alone in third.
Park, the LPGA Tour player of the year in 2013, had a one-shot lead through 10 holes until back-to-back birdies allowed her to seize control. She finished at 24-under 268.
The South Korean earned a small measure of redemption. A year ago, Pettersen rallied to beat Park in the final round at Mission Hills.
